It's been close to a week since this Jersey Shore star gave birth to her third child, and we're already hooked. Snooki has been sharing updates about her journey and being outnumbered by kiddos, including this one about navigating the waters of postpartum life.

  • Snooki is keeping it all the way real when it comes to recovering after labor and delivery.

    "New Style Coming Soon @thesnookishop #MomEdition," she jokes in her Instagram post.

    Snooki, who has her own clothing store, isn't the only one who recently gave birth and feels inspired to coin up because of it. Jessica Simpson wants to add her beast milk to her Jessica Simpson collection that would likely be a lucrative addition if she ever did it. (Clearly, it's a joke.)

  • Those mesh panties are total lifesavers!
    Seriously, labor and delivery is hard AF. The recovery -- whether you gave birth vaginally or via C-section -- can be quite challenging to say the least, so stock up on all those hospital "freebies" before heading home!
  • Snooki also took a moment to throw up a post-baby selfie on the 'Gram with a message about how she's doing to fans ... and critics.

    "4 days postpartum & body is feeling good besides the fact that my cramps still feel like contractions! Still healing but can't wait to jump back into the gym hardcore this summer! " Snooki shares. "Time to be a fit mawma again for my nuggets."

    Sadly, this mama caught some heat (aka mom shaming) for talking about wanting to work out and get in shape for the summer. But in classic Snooki fashion, she added a message for critics.

    She writes:

    "EDIT: Receiving backlash because I can't wait to get in the gym and get fit again? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don't attack me for wanting to become strong and fit again after my pregnancy. My boobs are leaking and pulsating, my butthole is sore and my cramps are unbearable & I'm still wearing a diaper the size of Texas. Postpartum is a b---h. But I'm allowed to look on the bright side of things and want to get back into shape. Don't punish me for that.

    THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR ADVICE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH RECOVERY! I'm still keeping my diaper on for weeks tho."

    There ya have it!
  • No matter the uncomfy moments, it seems she's taking everything in stride and loving her family of five.

    Baby Angelo, who joins Snooki's son Lorenzo, 6, and daughter Giovanna, 4, with hubby Jionni, is just as cute as can be. Her children are precious beyond words. We can only imagine all of the fun family moments in store.
